From the archives: an illustration used promote my old DIY showspace in Baltimore, "The Cat and Milk." 

Armed with a large cup of coffee from The Daily Grind, I parked myself on a bench in Fells Point to brainstorm a good name for my art/illustration business. Many artists use their own name, which is all well and good and classy,  but my own vowel-besotted last name may be too difficult to spell/remember. For branding and marketing reasons, a domain name and Etsy store should be memorable and easy to spell.

For easy business recognition, I tried to work things like pen, paper, pets into the name.  I also wrote down a list of things I like:  cats, history, Hawaii and anything associated with it... This list quickly spiraled out of control into stuff I couldn't use in a [good] business name: napsthe Battle of Stalingrad, elastic waistbands... 

Other people have already claimed a lot of the names I jotted down:

Parrotfish:  Look at that smile. Who wouldn't want this dude on their business card? I want to call him right now!

By the time I'd finished by coffee, the lunch-rush was beginning to gather on Thames Street. I still hadn't come up with a sure-fire name for this new business endeavor. So, to be continued, I suppose.
